The only indispensable guide to Britain's Army covers the 'Old Contemptibles' - the professTerritorials, Kitchener's 'New Army' and 'Derby's Men', the conscripts who eventually defeated the Kaiser's armies five years later. Andrew Rawson examines the contribution of the Empire, military doctrine, training, communications, strategy and tactics, divisional organisation. He reviews everyday life, equipment, rations, leave and discipline. He profiles the commanders and the legacy of the War in art and provides information on cemeteries and places of interest. It is all here, in one book. It has never been surpassed.
